Adult Dental Clinic Client Examples

Below are some examples of how our Free Dental Clinic helps the local homeless and in need. We’re passionate about the improvement in our community, and with this program, we have changed and continue to help change lives.

Sarah

Sarah is a drug addict in recovery with severe dental issues.  Her continued recovery was at risk due to her severe pain. She needed two teeth removed and had no income, no insurance, and no alternatives. The IFM Adult Dental clinic took care of the extractions and eliminated her pain. She is continuing her recovery, now even closer to a productive and happy life.

Kelvin

Kelvin is an inmate in the Calhoun County jail with several teeth giving him problems. Interfaith Ministries Adult Dental Clinic is the ONLY option for Calhoun County Inmates with dental issues. 

James

James could be described as one of the working poor. He is employed as a full-time food service worker making minimum wage, but does not have dental insurance benefits. He broke a molar which resulted in a painful and potentially dangerous abscess. IFM sent him to a dentist office immediately for antibiotic treatment. We then set him up an appointment at our free clinic to remove the broken tooth, allowing him to return to work. 

Carl

Carl is a gentleman from Anniston preparing for chemotherapy and radiation therapy for throat cancer. Before his cancer treatment could begin, he was instructed by his oncologist to have teeth removed. In a potentially grim turn of events, he found himself without dental insurance and without resources. IFM assisted him with the extractions, paving the way to continue his lifesaving treatment.
